Gavin Esler: "Brexit without the bullshit" on 28th November at 7pm

Join Gavin Esler at Keats Community Library for a doubtless lively evening on Brexit - post 31st October

"At first I thought that if Brexit were stripped of the bullshit — lies and deceit, scare stories and fantasies — there would be nothing left.

But the facts about Brexit are so stark, there’s plenty to discuss and think about.

The key fact is this:  Brexit is not an event. It is a process. Whether it happens or not, whatever version of leaving the EU we end up with, we will be forced to discuss Brexit for years to come. If we are to survive and perhaps thrive, we need to start with the facts."

Thursday 28th November at 7pm (note early start) in Keats Community Library.

Tickets are £10 and can be bought in the Library (020 7431 1266) and on line from www.wegotickets.com - Click this Link

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF A GENERAL ELECTION IS CALLED FOR 28th NOVERMBER, this event will be postponed and we will refund tickets.



Gavin Esler is an award winning television and radio broadcaster, novelist and journalist. He is the author of five novels and two non-fiction books, The United States of Anger, and most recently Lessons from the Top, a study of how leaders tell stories to make other people follow them. It’s based on personal encounters with a wide variety of leaders, from Bill Clinton and Angela Merkel to Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, and even cultural leaders such as Dolly Parton.

Reviewers have been full of praise for Esler’s fiction and story-telling abilities. The writer Bernard Cornwell said his novels are "made luminous with wisdom, sympathy and story telling." The Guardian commented that Esler's fiction displays "undoubted sympathy for the human condition and a burning anger, a genuine lyricism, a quick sensitivity and a real understanding of other people." The Financial Times said Esler's stories of people in power and the compromises they are forced to make, shows that he "understands the political beast better than anyone."
